From one prison to another. Jason Alexander was sentenced to prison on Tuesday (Aug. 16) after completing a 60-day term for breaking into Britney’s house during her June wedding. Jason, 40, was arrested, charged with grand theft and buying/receiving stolen stuff, and promptly taken to Napa County Jail, according to TMZ. Jason’s recent legal woes arise from charges that he stole a woman’s $2,000 of jewellery in 2015.
According to TMZ, Jason supposedly slept at an anonymous woman’s residence for a month before she found a piece of jewellery stolen from her bedroom. Jason was accused of taking it by an anonymous lady, which he initially denied. According to TMZ’s police sources, Jason “later admitted to the woman he stole the bling, a diamond and sapphire tennis bracelet valued at $2k, and sold it to a local pawn shop.” In February 2016, the woman phoned the police, and the inquiry apparently led to the pawn shop where Jason allegedly sold the $2k bracelet for $180.
Police allegedly returned the jewellery to the woman and filed a felony arrest warrant for Jason. According to Page Six, he is presently being detained on $20,000 bail. Despite the move, Jason will have to appear in court on November 9 for a hearing in his break-in case.
Jason returned to the public eye after crashing Britney and Sam Asghari’s wedding in June. Britney’s ex-husband, who was famously married to the “Toxic” singer for 55 hours, went on Instagram Live as he attempted to sneak into her wedding ceremony. Jason stated on Live, “Britney Spears invited me here. She’s my first wife, my only wife. I’m her first husband. I’m here to crash the wedding cause nobody’s here but Sam. So where the f***’s the family?”
“We responded to Britney Spears’ property for a trespassing investigation,” Ventura County Sheriff Officer Wright told HollywoodLife. “We arrested an individual by the name of Jason Alexander, 40 years old, for a warrant that is out of state. He is at our Thousand Oaks station right now and being booked.” Soon afterwards, Britney was granted a restraining order against her ex.
Jason first pled not guilty to two charges of aggravated trespassing and violence, but on August 12 altered his plea to “no contest.” Two other counts were dropped: felony stalking and criminal vandalism. Jason was sentenced to 128 days in the Ventura County Jail, 64 of which he had previously spent.
